Question about Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
If it is the rubber line attaching to the caliper, you need to replace the short rubber hose. The hoses do wear out over time from all the flexing stress involved. All parts stores sell them.
If the leak is from a steel line, that section of line will have to be replaced. Not likely any GM dealer would still carry a parts line for a discontinued Cutlass, nor would any parts store ever carry brake line sections (except for the rubber hoses). One could find the same section from a salvage yard, or have a shop construct the broken section from brake line tubing, with proper fittings at each end.
In most cases, it is the rubber brake hose that develops leaks. So, back to the parts store. When replaced, the brakes will have to be bled, to get trapped air out of the brake lines.
